If you are trying to play a music CD what you might want to check an see is if you have a cable running from your sound card to your CD ROM or DVD rom drive. This is a thin gray cable that has a flat connector with 4 pins. You should see this connector on the back of your Optical drive (CD or DVD drive)

Hope this helps

The 4 pin connector should be located right beside the jumpers on the back of your optical drive.
